In short: The OnePlus 6T will lack a 3.5mm headphone jack, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei confirmed in an interview with TechRadar. “Things that provide user value can also add friction,” the executive asserted, adding that the company's own estimates suggest 59-percent of its customers already bought into the wireless audio segment and own at least one pair of wireless earbuds.

The OnePlus 6 is seen here featuring something the iPhone X doesn't
OnePlus has never been a company to shy away from controversy, but the fast-rising smartphone manufacturer is also used to making headlines with various trend-snubbing decisions largely praised by consumers.

The OnePlus 6T won't have a headphone jack, but battery life will be improved
